It's been a long week painting the kitchen, and I'm still not done. But I did find some time to put together my pick of the week's top 5 items of interest:
  1. Despite what most Americans think about the Chinese government's censorship of the Web, 2007 survey found that over 80% of respondents said they thought the Internet should be controlled or managed, and almost 85% thought the government should be the one to do it.

  2. Watch out: Facebook's user interface is about to make a radical change. Instead of having everything listed on a single page, items have been rearranged under their own tabs. The redesign is going to force many third party Facebook applications to modify how they work. Let the whining begin!

  3. Would you still be interested in watching a football game if you knew all the plays were being called by a computer? Let's hope it never comes to this.

  4. What happens when you create a salacious news article that didn't really happen, just to get people to link to your website? You either get praised or pounced.

  5. Have you received your economic stimulus package yet? I hope you'll look past the shiny new whatever and give to someone who is really in need.
